Special Education Needs Development
At Lymington Infant School we believe in nurturing the whole child. We aim to provide a happy, stable environment which will foster a positive attitude to lifelong learning where children can develop their skills and talents. We have high expectations and aim to provide an education which enables each child to achieve their full potential, irrespective of their starting points. Our teachers and teaching assistants aim to meet the needs of all learners through High Quality Inclusive Teaching. They work hard to ensure that every child is able to access the curriculum, at their level, by providing appropriate support and challenge.
‘Special educational provision is underpinned by high quality teaching and is comprised by anything less’. SEND Code of Practice 2014
Where a child needs more targeted support, we aim to identify additional needs and provide that support as early as possible so that children's needs are quickly met with the correct support and provision.
We work closely with parents and other agencies such as Speech and Language Therapy Services and Educational Psychologists and we attend regular, relevant training.
Children with identified needs, requiring support that is additional to and significantly different from their peers, are placed on the special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) register.
The SEND coordinator for our school is Olivia Bull.
Should you require advice, or have any questions about special educational needs, please do not hesitate to contact her through the school office on 01590673355 or email her via the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Governor responsible for SEND is Mr Richard Hastings.
